Case Study: Contaminated Sites

THIS ARTICLE IS A CASE STUDY OF HISTORICAL PROJECTS HYDROSOLUTIONS HAVE WORKED ON.

PRIVATE DEVELOPER: DESK APPRAISAL OF FORMER MIXED INDUSTRIAL SITE, Derbyshire, England

A desk study was undertaken of a mixed industrial site, including part of a gas works, a former lead-acid battery manufacturer, timber mill and former cotton mill.  Anecdotal data was researched via archives and interviews with former site workers.  The geology was described from published and limited site-specific data.

The site hydrogeology comprised a deep valley incised into outcropping limestone, overlain by thin alluvium.  Shallow unconfined groundwater was in hydraulic continuity with a nearby class 1A river.  The site was split into five areas with similar historical activities/contaminants.

An initial qualitative risk assessment characterised the risk to the proposed site re-development.

Recommendations were made for a detailed investigation program.
